Mixed Media Bird Panel with Suzette Smart

1 customer review



On this two day workshop you will create a mixed media panel and include in your design a bird of your choice.
This might be one of your favourite garden birds or maybe one from further afield. Your bird will be brought to life using fabric collage and free machine embroidery.
The story will be developed further with the addition of words, a sentence, a verse or maybe a small corner of map. These are added using a fabric transfer method.
Small pieces of fabric are then collaged and stitched to make flowers and to blend birds and words together.
A little tea staining and hand stitching can sometimes have the last say.
